My old dell laptop is beeping 8 times when start-up, and i bought it for 3 years. The issue will happen sometimes I finished playing game.
Sometimes I restarted it for 2-3 times and the issue will be resolved. But for one week ago, only the 8 beeps with black screen on start-up. Does anyone knows the problem might be? My OS is windows 7 home. Thanks in advance!

This page contains info on beep codes. Looks like 8 is LCD failure.

Try hooking up an external monitor if possible to see if it outputs an image to that. You may have to hit some key combination to make it put a picture on the external monitor.
